    Identification of sucker control genes

    HAMANO K.; SUZUKI S.; SATO S.; ARAI M.; NEGISHI Y.; NOMURA A.; TSUKAHARA M.
    Japan Tobacco Inc., Leaf Tobacco Research Center, Oyama, Tochigi, Japan
    In tobacco, depending on strong shoot apical dominance, suckers grow vigorously after topping. A sucker can develop sequentially at least three times at each axil during the cultivation period. Suckers negatively affect tobacco yield and quality. ...

    Genome-wide identification and functional characterization of senescence-associated genes of the NAC transcription factor family in tobacco

    LI Wei; LI Xiaoxu; CHAO Jiangtao; ZHANG Zenglin; WANG Weifeng; GUO Yongfeng
    Tobacco Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS), Qingdao, Shandong, P.R. China
    The NAC family is one of the largest families of plant-specific transcription factors. NAC proteins play important regulatory roles in a variety of developmental and stress response processes in plants. Members of the NAC family transcription factors have ...

    Development of THA mutant line having markedly increased threonine in cured leaves

    KOIKE A.; NOGUCHI S.; TSUKUI S.; OGURO S.
    Japan Tobacco Inc., Leaf Tobacco Research Center, Oyama, Tochigi, Japan
    Threonine (Thr), an amino acid, is known to be related to tobacco smoking flavour and aroma. Obtaining Thr-rich cured tobacco leaves is difficult because Thr contents in fresh tobacco leaves are decreased drastically during curing processes. To increase ...

    Effects of tobacco curing with flower buds in the same bulk-barn on the quality of flue-cured tobacco leaves

    SUN Fushan; ZHOU Ping; WANG Songfeng; ZI Yinyin; ZHENG Furui; GAO Xianhui; ZHANG Ye; LIU Yajun
    Tobacco Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS), Qingdao, Shandong, P.R. China
    In order to explore new technologies of tobacco curing and flavouring, tobacco leaves were flue-cured with different amounts of fresh tobacco flower buds placed in the curing barn and the results were compared with those of conventional tobacco curing. ...

    Plant metabolism studies with 14C-maleic hydrazide (MH) in tobacco and evaluation of analytical methods

    TATENO A.(1); KISHI H.(1); NAKAYAMA K.(2); OYAMA K.(1); MIYOSHI M.(1)
    (1) Japan Tobacco Inc., Leaf Tobacco Research Center, Oyama, Tochigi, Japan; (2) Japan Tobacco Inc., Scientific and Regulatory Affairs Division, Tokyo, Japan
    Maleic hydrazide (MH) is used as a sucker control agent for tobacco. Reportedly, absorbed MH in tobacco plants is metabolized to its glucoside conjugates and is converted to the bound form. However, how much original MH can be converted to those forms in ...

    Pyrethroid resistance in the cigarette beetle Lasioderma serricorne (F.) (Coleoptera: Anobiidae)

    FUKAZAWA N.; TAKAHASHI R.
    Japan Tobacco Inc., Leaf Tobacco Research Center, Oyama, Tochigi, Japan
    Spraying application of contact insecticides onto building surfaces (walls and floors) is a key measure to control the cigarette beetle Lasioderma serricorne (F.) population in tobacco warehouses. Pyrethroids have been used widely as effective surface ...

    New genetic source for black shank resistance and genomic loci associated with its resistance

    SHINJO A.; KOGA K.; ONO T.; NOGUCHI S.
    Japan Tobacco Inc., Leaf Tobacco Research Center, Oyama, Tochigi, Japan
    Black shank causes severe yield loss of tobacco in Japan because of root and leaf infection by Phytophthora nicotianae, the causal agent of this disease. Several cultivated varieties in Japan have partial resistance derived from Florida 301, which is ...

    Enhanced resistance to potato virus Y (PVY) and resistance-breaking PVY in tobacco eIF4E-S and eIF(iso)4E-T double mutant

    TAKAKURA Y.; UDAGAWA H.; SHINJO A.; KOGA K.
    Japan Tobacco Inc., Leaf Tobacco Research Center, Oyama, Tochigi, Japan
    Eukaryotic translation-initiation factors in plants, eIF4E and eIF(iso)4E, play key roles in infection by potyviruses and other plant RNA viruses. Mutations in the genes encoding these factors might reduce susceptibility to viruses. They are the basis of ...

    Degradable residues characterization and possible MRL setting for albendazole, flusilazole and imazalil in tobacco

    JIANG Huatao; YOU Xiangwei; SUI Chengcheng; ZHANG Guangyu; WANG Xiuguo; LI Yiqiang
    Tobacco Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS), Qingdao, Shandong, P.R. China
    A modified QuEChERS method combined liquid chromatography-tandem triple quadrupole mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS) was developed for three novel pesticides, albendazole, flusilazole and imazalil, which are used for the control of tobacco leaf spot diseases ...

    Solvent-free extraction method for in vitro testing with tobacco vapor products

    ITO H.; KITAMURA N.
    Japan Tobacco Inc., Scientific Product Assessment Center, Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan
    Since extracts made with emissions from ENDS and tobacco vapor products (TVP) generally exhibit weak biological responses in commonly used in vitro tests compared to those from conventional cigarettes, it is essential to generate very high concentration ...
